Exactly a year ago today I said I would provide a series of weekly posts which looked at contemporary English in a rather unusual way. If you have been reading Never a cross word, you will know that cryptic crossword clues have served as a catalyst for providing a whole range of different talking points – a teaching methodology for ESL students which may be unique. That series has now concluded after 50 posts which are all still accessible in the archive.  If you are interested, there is plenty there to read.

I do hope, wherever you are in the world, that you found this experiment enjoyable and educational.  Good luck with your English studies.
